“Motel rooms are crappy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stayed at the cheaper motel rooms. Dirty carpeting, smell that was a mixture of musty and cleaning chemicals. Dirty water in the indoor pool. Decent location, and nice breakfast. Free wifi and free Chula Vista waterpark admission was nice. (Chula Vista was a nice but smaller waterpark about 10 minute drive outside of Wisconsin Dells.)

We booked this hotel a first of all for the excellent location- across the street is Mt.Olympus park-that is closer than each Olympus village!Also too close to 'Ducks',Deer park,Secret house,Noah's Ark Water Park....in the middle of the Dells. And we were pleasant surprised of room at the hotel part-comfortable and very clean-TV,WiFi,microwave,air conditioner,coffee maker,continental breakfast was fresh with variety of food. Everyone was friendly.Everyone of us got free passes to the Chula Vista water park for the whole trip,and 50% discount for Mt.Olympus park,40% for Noah's Ark Water Park.
We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend!

I stayed 4 nights with my family over the week of 4th of July.The staff went out of their way to be helpful in every way they could including finding us great deals on activitys aside from the ones they already offer.The rooms were very decent for the price.I will stay and support the family owned skyline any day.

Checked in OK, but when we checked out, no one was at desk until 8:00 a.m. and had to get likely the janitor to check us out. Then were presented with a print out for our room different than when we checked in - and did not receive the 10% off that we were promised that we would receive. Asked to speak to the manager and were told to leave our name and number and he would call us. NEVER got a call from Drew, despite two calls to speak to him - was told he was unavailable. Spoke to Michelle - who was quite rude and told me that we were in the wrong - and that the rates changed from when we booked the hotel to when we actually checked in and out - what the frick is with that???? One good thing about the hotel, its location and the passes you get to Mt. Olympus. Breakfast ratings are overated. No actual creamer for your coffee - had to use powdered creamer. Ran out of bagels by 8:00 a.m. Odd also that the sink is not in the actual bathroom but out in the room. Also needs better pillows. We woke with sore necks from the very flat pillows. All in all, would not recommend this hotel.

The best thing I can say about the Skyline is it's right in the middle of the Dells action. If you go to Mt. Olympus you are right across the street and can just walk over. Likewise, the Original Ducks is right next door. Other than that, I'd say this hotel barely makes average ratings for most categories. Our room had a rattly old style air conditioner that clicked on and off all night. Things were generally clean. Hot & cold water seemed to be reversed in our sink for some reason. The fridge and microwave were 80's vintage at best. I don't consider myself a coffee snob, but I couldn't even drink their coffee at breakfast one morning. Breakfast underwhelmed me ... except fro the waffles which you cook yourself, everything else seemed almost, but maybe not quite as fresh as you'd hope for. Tuesday-Thursday the hotel was really empty, but breakfast on friday morning was a madhouse. The waffles were the one bright spot, but there was literally a 10-15 minute wait to get to the front of the waffle line all morning long, with mothers and grandmothers pumping out 5 or 6 waffles in a row for their kids. (I'm really glad to see mom's looking after their kids, but just pointing out how busy and slow the waffle line was.) All that said, we didn't go to the Dells to hang out in our hotel room, so we got along ok, and the one morning they had undrinkable coffee I ran over to the otherside of town to the starbucks. The other thing that was almost, but not quite average was the hotel wifi, it just seemed to be marginal and sketchy much of the time. But with some patience and some retries we could usually check our emails and call up a few web page. The staff at the front desk seemed friendly, and our room seemed to be made up nice each day, it was mostly the hotel facility itself that seemed dated and underwhelming.

Room Tip: We were able to get upgraded to a mini-suite at no extra charge just by asking about it.

Nice hotel for visiting the Dells... 1 night includes half price tickets(20 bucks!) to Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park (which is right across the street!)..Rooms are spacious and clean, shower was nice...Also it list complimentary continental breakfast...which in all my travels I've never seen a continental spread like theirs (donuts, coffee, juice, eggs, biscuits w/gravy, fruit, bagels, milk, cereal) Worth the price

This past weekend i stayed at the Skyline for a girls weekend and friday night went as planned, but on saturday night while we were getting ready for a night on the town my friend saw something crawling on the bed. She killed it and after looking at it we knew exactly what it was: a bed bug!(the pesky little creatures that bite and can hitch a ride home with you and can infest your house.) After the initial awe wore off, we decided to go to the front desk and speak with the manager.
We walked into the front office and asked for the manger, thats when we met Michelle. My friend greeted her and told her what we had found and said we were disgusted. Immediately, Michelle became very short with us and said, "I think you better pack your things and leave!" Um what?! Why must we up root ourselves and move??? My friend ask how we were going to be compensated and Michelle said if we left and never came back we could have the money back for saturday, but if we decided to stay(in the same room) she would only discount our room $25! Really!?! what kind of management is this??? That's when things got a little tense and she ended up cursing at us because we became angry over the fact that we were either going to have to find somewhere else to sleep for the night or sleep with the bugs!! That's when Michelle found it necessary to alert the police. Michelle told them that we were being disorderly, well i think that would be a normal reaction to being told to leave after we had been wronged.
the police officer was very nice and even tried to help us look for another place to stay. Being it was on a satruday there were no vacancies anywhere in the dells area.
so because of Michelle and her poor managerment we were forced to cut our trip short and head for home (3 hours away). on the way home we read all of the reviews about the skyline (which we should of done before we booked) and i could not believe how many are about Michelle and her poor managerment skills or lack there totally of. i have never met a manager that didnt want to hear about it and blames it on the customer without even a thought
